    Hello,
    I want to do this :
    I have a product which cost 0.56 euros (i'm from France, sorry for my english :)
    I want to have a automatic coupon working like this :
    - if the person buy 5 units of the product, the 5 products are selled 2 euros
    - if the person buy 10 units, it's 4 euros
    and so on.
    What is the best way to do this ? (thanks to give a detailled example, i just bought the pro version and i don't "masterize" AwoCouponPro :)

    Thanks !
    Xavier

    Hello,

    So if each is .56 then for 5 it is 2.80. And you want to give a .80 discount for every 5?

    I belive there are 2 ways to do this:

    Solution 1:
    You can do this with a value defintion:
    - Coupon
    - Discount type: specific
    - Percent or Amount: amount
    - Value definition
    qty total
    5 0.80
    10 1.60
    15 2.40
    ......
    - Asset: select the specific product
    The downside to this method is you have to enter as many entries as you think is the max a customer would purchase.


    Solution 2:
    Use buy x get y coupon:
    - Buy x get y
    - Percent or Amount: amount
    - Value: 0.80
    - Buy X:
    + Number: 4
    + Product: select product A
    - Get Y:
    + Number: 1
    + Product: select product A

    In this method, for every 5 of product A entered into the cart, the customer receives an 80 cents discount.

    Hi Seyi,
    Thanks for that !
    I'm going to try both solution (but in this situation, the second solution seems to be the best imho).

    Thanks again :)

    ***************
    Ouch !
    I wrote a new comment and it's gone :(
    Ok, i type it here again !

    I did this :
    My product cost 0.60 euros and 5 units a 2 euros unstead of 3 (5 x 0.60)
    So the discount is 1 euro by 5 units, right ?
    So, i used "buy x get y" like this :
    ***********
    percent or quantity/value : quantity/value
    value: 1
    type of process : the smallest value
    buy 4 product A
    get 1 product A
    *************

    But, i have on the frontend
    5 units : 3 euros
    Discount : 0.60 euro

    What did i do wrong ?

    By the way, there is something mistaking in the french translation (but maybe it's not relevant) :
    in french on the field "percent or value", i have on the label "percent or value" and in the dropdown i have "percent" and "quantity". Just the translation or something else ?

    Thanks for your help :)

    Hello,

    Your original message did not get lost, it is still at the top, right under you original question.

    Ok, it looks like you set the discount to 100%?

    It should be "percent or amount" not "percent or quantity". For that dropdown change the selection to "quantity" and try it again.

    I just realized, since you set the get Y to 1 product, it will give a percent discount or an amount discount up to the cost of the product. So since the product cost is 0.6, the max discount that will be given is 0.6.

    So try to change it from Buy 4 get 1 to Buy 3 get 2, this way it can give a discount up to 1.20.

    ok... BUT ^^
    If the person buy 3 x 0.60, it's 1.80.
    If i use this rule, i miss 0.2 euros...

    I try the other way to see if that's better...
    Thanks :)
    Xavier

    EDIT
    I used the first way (5 = 1 euro, 10 = 2euros, etc..)
    It works : i did the calculation up to 100 units.
    If that's not enough, i will add more after :)

    By the way, if you have the solution for the 0.20 euros missing in the other solution, just tell me :)
    Thanks anyway,
    Xavier

    EDIT 2
    OUCH !
    Something is not working !
    If i do this for 2 different products, the discount is done only for one product ! There are not added together !
    Product A : 10 units -> discount 2 euros
    Product B : 10 unites -> discount 2 euros

    In the cart, i have :
    Product A : 6 euros
    Product B : 6 euros
    Discount : 2 euros !
    I should have 4 euros no ?

    If i remove the first or the second one, i keep 2 euros of discount....

    How can i resolve this ?
    Thanks !

    Hello,

    When setting up the coupon, did you select specific products? If so can you make sure both Products A and B are on the list?

    And for the buy x get y way, I do not understand. What do you mean you miss 0.2? If you set it to Buy 3 get 2, then the customer has to have a total of 5 items in the cart to get the discount. And the amount discount will discount for each of the get Y products. So if you have Buy 3 get 2, and you want a total discount of 1 euro, then set the value to 0.5 amount.

    All seem to be right.
    I send you screen shots just in case...
    Thanks,
    Xavier
    EDIT

    There is something really wrong... now i have at the top of the page : "This coupon is no more active. Please choose another one."
    ...
    I'm going to erase the coupon and recreate it to be sure...
    I come back...

    EDIT
    Ok, i delete and recreate the coupon : no more message at the top of page, but i have not the correct results with both product (if i delete the first or the second, i have the discount for the product but 2 discounts don't give the correct result...).

    Hello,

    Viewing the image you sent, you are using 2 different coupons as automatic discounts. By default processing multiples coupons is disabled. Have you enabled multiple coupons in awocoupon->configuration? If not, then it would only process one coupon.
